Day 92 – Packed

Ardha-Kurmasana or Half Tortoise Pose

Ardha-Kurmasana or Half Tortoise Pose 5/12/10

It was really hard for me to get up for yoga this morning, but I told myself that I already missed Monday and Tuesday – so had to get up.  And so I did – was not expecting 20 cars in the parking lot when I pulled up with 2 minutes until class started – and moreover, there were 4 cars pulling in behind me at the same time!

Who knows why it was so packed this morning, but it is a trend that I would like NOT to continue.

Ardha-Kurmasana or Half Tortoise Pose

Ardha-Kurmasana or Half Tortoise Pose 5/12/10

Today’s posture is Ardha-Kurmasana or Half Tortoise Pose.  I will be amazed if my ass ever is on my heels in this pose – I guess there is always room for hope!  I am still really tight in hero’s pose as well.  I would like for that trend to stop.

Nothing interesting happened today in class and because I was so tired, I think I end up having a different state of mind – almost like a more meditative one where I am concentrating on things that don’t really matter, rather than planning my day – which is what I usually do and which I know is one of the big No-Nos.

I am freezing as I write this – because I have yet to shower and my clothes are soaking wet – and being in air conditioning isn’t cool right now.  I am trying to write right when I get home from class so that I don’t forget to post or so I don’t get distracted with work.  Off to shower!

Namaste!
